Huskies ranked No. 17 in AP poll

The Washington Huskies are ranked No. 17 in the Associated Press college football poll after defeating Illinois 34-24 on Saturday for their second straight victory.
The Huskies are No. 20 in the USA Top 25 poll.
Nebraska has dropped out of the AP poll after its latest humbling loss, and the top of the rankings was unchanged after No. 1 Alabama passed its first big test of the season.
The Cornhuskers, No. 23 last week, are unranked the day after UCLA won in Lincoln, Neb., 41-21. The Bruins scored the final 38 points. Since Nebraska's record streak of 348 consecutive poll appearances ended in September 2002, there have been only two seasons (2010, '11) in which the Huskers have been ranked every week, starting in the preseason.
The Tide received all but one of 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Texas A&M 49-42. The Aggies are 10th. The rest of the top five is Oregon, Clemson, Ohio State and Stanford.
